Egypt: Grain and Feed Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   EG2021-0020

FAS Cairo (Post) forecasts Egypt’s wheat imports in marketing year (MY) 2021/22 (July – June) at 12.4 MMT, up from the previous marketing year estimate due to higher consumption driven by population growth. Egypt’s wheat production in MY 2021/22 is also up from the previous marketing year. Egypt’s corn production expanded significantly in response to high prices, while rice production fell sharply as the government enforced restrictions on its planted area. Consequently, corn imports are forecast lower, while rice imports are expected up to offset the production shortfall.
